    Netanyahu praises Trump ‘historic decision’ on Jerusalem

    https://www.nbcnews.com/video/netany...-1110831683857

    Everytime the USA is about to create mayhem in the Middle East, Netanyahu is satisfied.

    Remember, that's the guy who advised George W Bush to launch a preemptive war in Iraq: "I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region."

    Really, it sounds as if Netanyahu has a lot to gain from a troubled Middle East. It must be why he always supports the worst the US has to offer.

    Oh yeah, the US embassy in Saigon. Another success story, huh?



    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embass...States,_Saigon

    The United States Embassy in Saigon was first established in June 1952, and moved into a new building in 1967 and eventually closed in 1975. The embassy was the scene of a number of significant events of the Vietnam War, most notably the Viet Cong attack during the Tet Offensive which helped turn American public opinion against the war, and the helicopter evacuation during the Fall of Saigon after which the embassy closed permanently.

    Israel gets larger after it's driven to war by its neighbours.

    It just makes sense for some of them to be such dicks.

    But why does Trump give them a hand?

    More accurately, Israel gets larger after its neighbors make war on it. That is what the '67 and '73 wars were.

    Why? They have had that land for over 3 thousand years with their holiest of sites there. They had the place for over 1 thousand years before there was even a Muslim on the planet.

    Does Trump have ‘a full understanding’ of his new Israel policy?
    12/07/17 08:40 AM

    By Steve Benen- NBC

    When Donald Trump delivered remarks yesterday announcing his new U.S. policy in Israel, the president seemed eager to tell the world how impressed he is with himself. “While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise,” he said, “they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering.”

    Ordinarily, when a president announces a dramatic shift in foreign policy, he’ll explain why the change advances U.S. interests. Yesterday, however, Trump didn’t bother. Indeed, a Washington Post report suggested he may not fully understand what he just did.

    Several advisers said he did not seem to have a full understanding of the issue and instead appeared to be focused on “seeming pro-Israel,” in the words of one, and “making a deal,” in the words of another. […]

    The debate came to a head at a White House meeting Nov. 27 to hash out the waiver issue. According to people briefed on the meeting, Trump repeated his earlier assertions that he had to follow through on his campaign pledge, seemingly irritated by objections over security and the break with previous policy.

    “The decision wasn’t driven by the peace process,” one senior official said. “The decision was driven by his campaign promise.”

    The circumstances are more than a little scary. During the campaign, some of Trump’s allies and donors told them they cared deeply about the United States moving its embassy to Jerusalem and a diplomatic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The then-Republican candidate agreed to their appeals without any meaningful understanding of the position he was endorsing.

    As president, Trump started with a political posture – make his base happy, do what other modern presidents wouldn’t do – and worked backwards, instructing his staff to formulate a policy that would bolster his political calculation.
